Heartland Vineyard Church offers many different kinds of Support & Recovery Groups.

Support groups offer a healing environment to deal with the pain and struggle of difficult life situations. Recovery groups help individuals overcome unwanted behaviors or addictions. All of these groups offer an opportunity for those with similar struggles to experience the love of Jesus and the care of His community.

Support & Recovery Groups are open to all. You do not need to attend Heartland Vineyard or know Jesus to join a group. Come as you are.


DivorceCare – Thursdays 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Divorce Care is a 13-week support group for those going through the pain of separation and divorce. A friendly, caring group of people will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Each meeting includes a video and small group discussion. Topics include facing anger, depression, loneliness, new relationships, financial survival, caring for children, and forgiveness.

You are welcome to begin attending the DivorceCare group at any point. Each session is “self-contained,” and you can continue through the next 13 week cycle to pick up the remaining sessions.

Celebrate Recovery – Tuesdays 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Participants of Celebrate Recovery experience God’s healing power through the eight recovery principles and the Christ centered twelve steps. This is a place where we work through life’s problems and allow God to release us from addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors that have been holding us back from authentic joy in our lives. A typical session includes large group worship, a short teaching, and small group time.

12-Step Small Groups meet for Celebrate Recovery participants who desire deeper healing and wish to continue in the 12 step model. These group have a passion for seeing people set free from addictions like drugs and alcohol. The groups are closed to ensure trust and safety.
